A School Streets scheme that was scheduled to come into force on roads around Oakdale Infants and Junior Schools in June has been postponed.

“To avoid the programme starting in a general election period, during which the council would be limited in some of the actions it can take, we decided to wait and introduce it after the summer,” said a spokesperson. The scheme will now launch on 2 September, covering Oakdale Road and Granville Road as well as parts of Woodville Road and Ashford Road.
